Traditional Swimming Australia NOAP Learner Guides

The Swimming Australia learner guides have been updated to reflect stronger officiating principles to assist technical officials with their understanding. As per Sport Australia requirements, these guides have been refreshed to be more contemporary and have also been updated in line with recent changes to FINA rules.

These Guides now also allow Technical Officials to work at their own pace with information easier to comprehend for technical officials at any level or experience.
